This was approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases through its Resolution No. 58 dated July 23, 2020.
The PRBOM has further recommended that the recent medical graduates who constitute the second batch of examinees this year will be scheduled to take their licensure examination on November 2020. The PRC will present detailed preparations for this examination before the IATF.
